Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge! All month long we'll be creating posts for each letter of the alphabet according to a theme. Click here to see the list of participating blogs.
My theme is Memorable Characters featuring characters from books, movies, and TV.
From: Sabrina Fair (play), adapted for film in 1954 and 1995 as Sabrina
Known For: infatuation, witticisms
I wrote a Young Adult novel inspired by the Sabrina story, so the character is fresh in my mind. Audrey may be the more beloved Sabrina, as she was perfect for the role (and the fashion was amazing), though overall, I like the '90s version with Julia Ormond and Harrison Ford better. For one, some of the dated storytelling is revamped (no suicide attempt played for laughs--seriously, it's disturbing) and a little more focus on Sabrina figuring herself out while she's away in Paris. The love story is a lot of fun. Sabrina, a chauffeur's daughter living on the estate of a rich family, swoons over charmer David, but eventually falls for his crumudgeony brother Linus. The love story is very character driven, with each character changing somewhat toward the end. I also like that the '90s version captures a bit of the older film's charm.
Have you seen Sabrina? Which film version is your favorite?
